Former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson is notorious for mocking health and safety, yet when Lawrence Waterman invited the controversial entertainer to present some safety awards in London he witnessed a remarkable transformation.

As Clarkson read out the citations his sarcastic tone gradually gave way to one of respect and admiration. Afterwards, Waterman asked him how Nikki Lauda’s crash in which he was badly burned made a difference to fire protection for drivers, and how Ayrton Senna’s crash had radically changed design within Formula One.

“He started talking about learning lessons from accidents in order to prevent a recurrence, sounding like an honorary member of our profession.”
